Cheyenne Landmarks: What’s With The Boots?
These Boots Are Made For Talking became reality in Cheyenne back in 2005!
Have you ever wondered how these “boots” came about. In 2004-2005, they were the inspiration of many artists. Did you know you can take a cell phone and a map, visit all of the 19 boots placed around Cheyenne. They are made for talking, because the artists of each boot will tell you the story for his or her’s boot.
